Leave SR alone. He is a good person - Qualified, Capable, Intelligent, Compassionate and Moral.

Fry the little one instead. The screams of joy would deafen us all!

S&P article ... Lantheus Medical Imaging

We are placing our 'B+' corporate credit rating and 'B+' issue-level
rating on CreditWatch with negative implications, reflecting the potential for
escalating leverage and diminished liquidity by the company's third quarter.

SR: qualified-yes, capable-yes, intelligent-ok, compassionate-?? nort really, moral-??? give me a break. He not only has drank his share of Kool-Aid, he has eagerly passed it out to others. Anyone that has remained in a management position in BD's org as long as SR has done some serious ass kissing and likely helped set some people up to their demise along the way. That's just the way it is...the Lantheus way.

You obviously don't know him at all. Not all people bowed to the Lantheus Way, no matter how much they shoved it down our throats.

fiefdom: the land over which a person exercises control after vows of vassalage and service to an overlord.
Man, no wonder there's no revenue. Our sales reps have been busying themselves playing dungeons and dragons.

I most certainly do know what it takes to remain a manager in BD's organization and also what it takes to remain a Lantheus employee, which explains why I am no longer there and couldn't be happier.

What's this? 8% paycut for BD and his fellow VP's? 4% cut for Directors and the like? Remaining employee population spread so thin, that they can't afford to let anyone else go and keep the place running.

VP paycuts will =200-250K, Directors if include Assoc Dir. will =100-150K. The typical layoff of 12 people is about 1M. People have to go to make up the difference, and they will. The next layoff wil be framed as "shared pain". Too little too late!

If the rest of the population takes a 2% pay cut they can squeeze out another 600K and make it to 1M. Makes cents...they can save now and then cut more people later. Win-win for LMI-Avista, lose-lose for workers. What else is new?

Summer hours, that was a joke. Not all departments could get them. The departments that were able to marginally get summer hours (here and there) only allowed "special people" such as their management to be able to take them. The workers had a slight chance of maybe being able to do so.

Oh yes, and some departments would limit when you could take your vacation - there were some people who lost their vacation time because they were not allowed to take (only certain times of the year).

The joke about summers hours was people were supposed to make up 4 hours during the week to take 4 hours off on Friday! Most did not work 40 hours to begin with (salaried) and would come in late Friday and leave after 2 hours!

Oh how right you are. Even better were the ones who came in late all week and took the summer hours. Or, how about the ones that took a personal holiday or vacation day during the week, and still took the summer hours. My understanding was you were supposed to work the hours (being at work) and also, the additional hours.

I too saw the slackers taking summer hours, but during the week worked less than 8 hours a day, took 2 hour lunches, and had many personal days or time off and still took advantage of the summer hours. Their immediate supervisors knew it and did nothing!

When I was there ... they kept hiring Assoc. Directors and Directors and let go the rank and file who did the work?

Speaking of first-line supervisors, I was one. Whenever I tried to reprimand worker-bees I was stopped by my manager and usually talked down to in group meetings. There was born the concept that "the supervisor does not run the group, the group runs the supervisor", with management backing.

Many people who are stilled jailed at LMI seem to have a lot of posts on the site? Sounds like you have eaten the poison apple and the drunk the AVISTA Kool Aid!

When did you read these posts and respond? On Company Time.

I am still at LMI and even I know they are monitoring access to this site on Company computers. I access this site from home on my own computer!

... well there are 10 plus pages of posts on Cafe Pharma dedicated to Lantheus Medical Imaging. That's a lot of ex - employess that got laid off that must be posting according to your theory, or a mix of ex and current employees posting ( including you - you hypocrit).

Don't knock yourself out over who's still there. The place is full of low hanging fruit hangers on. Only reason most are still there is that they're ass kissers or haven't yet pissed anyone off in authority. If you were gunned chances are someone in a position of power had a hair across their ass for you.

Senior Management doesn't want anyone in their organizations that might rock the boat and potentially make them look bad and therefore weak. They surround themselves with yes men and women that in turn make it clear they expect the same behavior from their subordinates. Anyone that steps out of line is made an example of to keep everyone else in lock step. Then there are those in management that are just vendictive f***ers or arogant bastards that will screw you just because they can. They don't need any reason beyond they don't like you. Anyone that thinks these kind of people don't exist at LMI are kidding themselves. They've always been there through all the different MI company variations...in good times and bad. Only good news for those still working there, the people that these members of management had a grudge against were among the first to go and are now long gone. So now you just have to make sure to kiss ass and stay on management's good side.

OMG

There are 1000 reasons to think LMI sucks, but the posts about the good getting let go, needing to suck up and protect to stay employed, etc. are just foolish. Lots of good people did and do work there, and lots of crappy people as well.

No doubt BD is in over his head, rising to that position way too fast, and worst of all it went to his head and now he believes he's actually worthy. He's screwed if he ever leaves, because no organization in its right mind would put him anywhere near that level. I suspect that DK keeps him around because he can manipulate him so easily. It may be comforting to call them idiots, but the truth is much worse. Avista and DK know exactly what they are doing. In the end, LMI will be ruined, but they will have made their money. It really is that simple. They will sell anything of value off to someone, and the rest will be left for bankruptcy.

BD's best hope is that he joins DK, PL, and some others in Avista's stable of executioners, assigned to the next corporate victim.

The saddest part is that it doesn't have to be that way. Assuming they get the supply chain straightened out, then there is enough money to fund operations and bring some promising new products to market. But Avista is about guaranteed short-term, not potential long-term, so that is not going to happen.

.... bring some promising new products to market ... it hasn't happenned yet - and it never will! Who is kidding who! LMI wiped out the R&D group! ABLAVAR is a JOKE! The PET perfusion agent has been put on the back burner! They do not want to invest in the future that they will not be part of!

The only hope of a new poduct is a drug that would grow some new hair for the DON! ... and Donald Trump would then buy the company!

He's screwed if he ever leaves, because no organization in its right mind would put him anywhere near that level. I suspect that DK keeps him around because he can manipulate him so easily. It may be comforting to call them idiots, but the truth is much worse. Avista and DK know exactly what they are doing. In the end, LMI will be ruined, but they will have made their money. It really is that simple. They will sell anything of value off to someone, and the rest will be left for bankruptcy.

BD's best hope is that he joins DK, PL, and some others in Avista's stable of executioners, assigned to the next corporate victim.

The saddest part is that it doesn't have to be that way. Assuming they get the supply chain straightened out, then there is enough money to fund operations and bring some promising new products to market. But Avista is about guaranteed short-term, not potential long-term, so that is not going to happen.
I agree over all there is a mix of good and no so good people that have been layed off and that are still working there. But, if you were to identify all employees with 20+ of service and were to divide it into two lists, those layed off and those still there, you would be surprised and even shocked at the results. Plenty of very competent and hard working people were targeted for no other than political and purely personal reasons. These layoffs have been going on now for 4 years. If you were to break down the lists even further to year by year the results would be even more stark. There are plenty of egotistical and self serving personalities in positions of power. In my many years of service, I was personally targeted by some of them and later defied others by refusing to do their dirty work and screw people. You can bet everyone left there knows who the pricks are that you better not cross or you'll be part of the next parade out the door.
